GnuCash vs QuickBooks

Hi all,
gnucash application.Regarding this,I have some doubts,

Are GnuCash and QuickBooks features are equal.
On what basis they differ.

Can we view QuickBooks ext.QBW files in GnuCash.

Is there any development going in implementing payroll system.

Thanks In Advance,
Sailaja Bhandaru

I believe there is quite a difference between GnuCash and Quickbooks. I think Gnucash is more on the level of Quicken. My wife uses both of them and prefers Quicken, but says when you factor in the cost, Gnucash is better. Gnucash can be a little difficult to get set up correctly, especially when doing split transactions. I'm not sure whether you can view .qbw files, but I know that Quicken will transfer across no problem. Gnucash also lets you download information from your bank same as Quicken.
